Low carb confused.
Sunday, March 09, 2014
Spent a good part of the day today looking into low carb diets. There are a bunch out there. The Atkins one has carbs ranging from 20-75 carbs a day. I looked at my tracker and saw I was always at the high end of my 174-304 range. That's a big difference from the higher 75. I've been kind of gaining and losing the same 2-3 pounds this last month, but I haven't also been consistent. I don't know if I should try something new or stick with what I know and just be more consistent. I can't say that what I have been doing isn't working because when I'm on track I lose. I don't know if I should re invent the wheel and try this new low carb way of eating. I have a hard enough time not eating unhealthy never mind no carbs. I'd rather eat a high carb banana than a cookie. I don't know what to believe anymore. Eat grains, don't eat grain, eat high fiber wheat, don't eat wheat (wheat belly). Are they all just fads? I carry most of my weight in my stomach also, so many feel that is another reason to do low carb. Has anyone else tried the Low carb or Paleo route?
